Additionally, the first-year athlete added a fourth place finish in the 100-yard breaststroke, clocking in at 1:12.47. Miodrag also appeared on a pair of relay teams, the 200-yard medley and the 400-yard freestyle, with times of 1:59.45 and 3:59.07, respectively.

All four races Miodrag was a participant in, she placed either first or second among HCAC individuals or teams.
